Survived the holidays!

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

I am grateful to have made it through the holidays with just an extra pound or two hanging on. Now that life is back to normal, I think those extra pounds will come off quickly. Although I stayed abstinent (refraining from eating sugar, fried foods, and white flour), my eating still felt very sloppy, and I wasn't trying to follow my nutritionist's food plan. It didn't feel so good. Feels nice to be having veggies again!

I am committing to joining my employer's fitness center sometime this week, so that I can start exercising at work. I will post here when I've done it.

My husband and I also talke about our goals for this year, and one of mine is to get through all the 12 steps of OA, if it kills me. Which, of course, it won't. emoticon I am trying to get into the rhythm of calling my sponsor each day. I'm also trying to have lunch with another OA friend once a week if possible.

    Well put it on the calendar, put a reminder or alarm on your phone to make sure you do it. I have my phone alarm set to go off at 4:50am & some times I get up & do my workout. Then some times I dismiss it & turn over but the options is there Mon - Friday. I get a 6am alarm on weekends, that is my late mornings. A little gift I give myself for weekend, not food. I am chewing Extra sugar free gum, I ate okay today but trying to soothe my sweet tooth. It starts with making it habit until it crosses over & becomes a way of a healthier life for us.

    God bless & you can do it!
